"We're extremely pleased that more sheriffs' apps are now available. These apps are valuable tools for the sheriffs to use to help keep their communities safe and informed," said David Kaelin, Appriss president. "And over the next few months we'll be adding many more sheriffs' offices to the list."

Once people download the free app, they'll have instant access to a wide range of information, from emergency notifications and Amber Alerts to a list of jail inmates and most-wanted criminals.

The app is provided free for sheriffs' offices that offer Appriss' VINE® program. VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) allows crime victims to register to be notified about the custody status of their offender 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
